Treherbert Skip Hire FAQs

What kinds of rubbish can you dispose of in a skip?

You can fill the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip will depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you are using a skip for heavy construction waste such as concrete or soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial size skips that are used mainly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that produce large quantities of waste materials.

If I require a skip on a road in Treherbert, will I need a permit?

Normally, it will be possible to get the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to get this done, you will need to have approval from your local authority in Treherbert, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Treherbert?

A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Treherbert. We make use of a network of both local and national businesses to allow us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to ensure they meet the high principles we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

Can I put electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered items like cookers, TVs, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

Can I fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will probably have to empty any items above the level load line. This means that you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure you select the correct size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size you require. We will be pleased to help.

How large is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.

The same goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Using a skip with a drop door can make loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste like dirt or stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky objects such as household furniture much easier too.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

Can you deliver to other areas in Mid Glamorgan?

Sure, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations throughout Mid Glamorgan, including Treherbert, Llantrisant, Pencoed and Merthyr Tydfil. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can normally keep your skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection date when you place your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.

It might take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest skips used to dispose of heavy building and demolition waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or clay.

The builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the shed, these substantial skips are usually the most affordable option available.

After that, select the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Treherbert on the day you have chosen.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to tackle, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also supply 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Treherbert where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How long will it take to get a skip in Treherbert?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can typically provide a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (like a highway), you must get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.

How much does skip hire in Treherbert cost?

The cost of getting a skip in Treherbert will depend on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you want to have the skip positioned on the road, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Other areas covered include Llantrisant, Pencoed, Merthyr Tydfil, Maesteg, Tonypandy, Treorchy, Mountain Ash and Porth.
